You’ve been gone, but Giant Joint’s alive and well in town: the Middletown Police Street Crime Unit found and seized 29 pounds of marijuana (above, actual image) addressed to a Middletown resident earlier this week, reports the Middletown Press. Details are still a bit hazy, but no doubt MPD can blaze through the investigation:
Detectives were advised that four boxes from a commercial shipping service were addressed to Roosevelt Freeman, 14 Traverse Square, Middletown, and possibly contained a large amount of marijuana. Two of the boxes remained at the shipping facilities annex in Louisville, Ky., which contained approximately 27.5 pounds of marijuana. The other two boxes (containing the 29 pounds) were allowed to continue on to their shipping destination, police said.[ . . . ] Johnnie Mae Mitchell and Theodore Roosevelt Freeman were both arrested and charged with possession of more than 4 ounces of marijuana, possession with intent to sell over one kilo of marijuana, and possession of marijuana with intent to sell within a public housing project. They were both released after posting $25,000 bonds.
